One of the Best Podcasts I’ve Ever Heard

In two words: amazing stuff. These two childhood sexual abuse (CSA) survivors and CSA activists - one an artist and clinical educator; the other a practicing clinical psychologist and peer-review published suicide researcher - discuss an array of related mental health subjects including their own personal experiences with extensive CSA, their ensuing battles with depression, PTSD, and suicidal ideation, as well as their journeys with Ketamine Treatment that provided both of them with a new lease on life. Guests with related experience and/or expertise are also interviewed. Delivered with candor, vulnerability, and humor, (and at times a wonderful sense of playfulness), these two deeply caring and compassionate souls paint powerful portraits of survivorship while bringing listeners into the fold on a number of difficult topics that few have both the courage and expertise to discuss in conversational depth. If you are a person who struggles with one of more of these mental health issues or care about someone who does, this podcast is probably for you. Mental health care practitioners who are looking to better understand the complex interplay between CSA and PTSD may also benefit. But this is in my view not merely a mental health podcast: It's two people speaking their truth - something we hear all too rarely in this cynical world full of pretense and artifice. (To try to help ensure that these two can continue to speak theirs, I just donated $50. It's my first time donating to a podcast. I encourage you to give something if you can afford it.)

Authentic

I listen to this podcast almost every week. It is fabulous and very authentic. Many episodes have touched me especially Episode 15. It really spoke to me but all the episodes I’ve heard are great.

BRAVE!

The two hosts are so brave! They shine a light on mental health and the struggles of chronic illness. They share their truth. This is a five star podcast! Honesty, integrity and a clear passion to give voice to the voiceless is at the core of their message. They address the topics that should not be ignored because they are difficult. It is clear they believe that by sharing their own life and truth they can help others who suffer in the shadows. Thank you for the fascinating interviews with experts and individuals who bring such amazing perspectives. Thank you for your honesty!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
